Yuck 'n Yum - Announcing our 2013 cover artist: Cos Ahmet‏

Yuck ’n Yum are delighted to announce that our new cover artist for 2013 is Cos Ahmet.

Cos Ahmet describes his work as a ‘collective of body dialogue’. Themes of sexuality, identity & self are all principle themes in his work, exploring these through structures of the figure, form and self, constructing and reconstructing them into altered egos, meta-figurative beings & grafted self portraits.

In his current practice, he works and thinks across disciplines & practice boundaries, engaging a diverse range of media to create his work. The process results in the repetition of imagery. Echoes and trace elements emerge. As the personal element is shaped and shifted, the gestured, sexualised and fragmented personalities transpire.

Cos Ahmet studied BA Hons Constructed Textiles at Middlesex University. He currently lives & works in London.

We at Yuck ‘n Yum are incredibly excited to have Cos as our 2013 cover artist and are intrigued to see the direction in which Cos will take YNY in the year to come. Cos has been a recurring contributor to the zine, and you can view these works amongst others by heading to our zine archive.

Please check out his website where you can see a delightful array of work and projects.

We would also like to say a big thank you to Helen Flanagan who was our 2012 cover artist. Helen produced four incredible covers for us last year and we wish her all the best for the future.

And of course, a reminder that the deadline for the Spring 2013 issue is the 15th of March.

Lots of love from Yuck 'n Yum
